    Made some dinner the other night. It is Gnudi all acqui al 2 (dua), which is basically ricotta cheese meatballs in fresh tomato sauce. For the gnudi, I sauteed up spinach in olive oil and garlic then added it to ricotta and parmesan with some flour to bind it. Form it into meatballs. For the sauce it was fresh tomatoes,seeded and chopped large. I sauteed the tomatoes in garlic olive oil and at the end added a huge handful of fresh basil. Once the sauce was done gently place the meatballs into the sauce, generously sprinkle parmesan cheese over the meatballs and throw it in a preheated 400# oven for 10 minutes or so to brown the meatballs.

    Here is all the fresh veggies and herbs

    GNUDI ALL'ACQUA 2


    print

    1 large bunch raw spinach, chopped
    5 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, plus extra for smearing hands (74ml)
    4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
    1 lb fresh ricotta cheese (450g)
    4 tablespoons freshly grated parmigiano cheese, plus extra for sprinkling (57g)
    salt to taste
    small quantity of flour, if needed
    20 cherry tomatoes, halved
    4-8 fresh basil leaves, chopped


    To start your Gnudi all'Acqua 2:



    Preheat oven to about 400 degrees Fahrenheit.


    Sautí spinach with 3 tablespoons of olive oil and half the quantity of the garlic for a few minutes until soft. Let cool.


    Then in a bowl, combine ricotta, spinach, parmigiano and salt. Add a small amount of flour, a little at a time, only if ricotta if filled with too much moisture.


    Combine mixture thoroughly.


    Smear some olive oil on your hands. Scoop mixture, in the amount of an egg, onto the palm of your hands and form into a compact ball. Repeat until mixture is consumed.


    In a saucepan, heat up remaining olive oil, then add remaining garlic, cherry tomatoes and basil and cook for approximately 5 minutes.


    Spoon half the sauce into a baking dish, then add the gnudi balls and top with the remaining sauce.


    Sprinkle with parmigiano and cook for approximately 10 minutes or until golden brown. Serve immediately.

    ^^^You will just have to make sure that after you brown the sausage you drain it really well and let it cool down. The hardest part and this batch wasnt really all that dry was to make sure you get the ricotta balls to form. You really have to make sure it is dry. But I bet sausage would be really good in them.

    Here is dinner tonight, grilled yellow and green zucchini with grilled strip steak and a salad. The salad has peeled oranges so there is no skin,purple kalamata olives,red onion chopped kind of big, basil chopped kind of big, and anchovies chopped if you like them!!!!! I dont really like anchovies but in this recipe they were delicious!!! INSALATA DI ARANCE E ACCIUGHE ( for you David Rocco fans and some one learning Italian...:D)

    Here is the squash and zucchini grilling, used the mandolin to slice them perfectly.
    [​IMG]

    Here it is plated with the grilled strip steak ( I thought that I took a picture of the steak on the grill but I didnt)

    [​IMG]

    Here is the salad, man it was good!!!

    Added extra awesomeness to its original awesomeness.
    This was just posted in the funny pics thread, but it rings true. I may have to go sign up for the cause. The state of tv and what people find entertaining is disgusting. No way in hell Amy should stay in business much less profit tremendously from a tv show.
